After days of despair for thousands of migrants in Budapest the Hungarian government has taken the decision to bus the asylum seekers to the Austrian border.

It marked a softening in approach from authorities.

One migrant from Afghanistan said “We are happy to leave here. I am grateful for the help of the Hungarian people.”

The Austrian government say the people arriving will be allowed to apply for asylum or travel on to Germany.

Those getting off the buses in Nickelsdorf are delighted to be out of Hungary.

“Now we are free. For five days in Hungary, we were in a very, very bad position. In a very, very bad position. And Allah, thanks God, thanks God,“said one relieved man.

A teenage migrant gave his impressions of Hungary:“Hungary is very naughty, all the people are very angry.”

Next stop Vienna with trains departing Nickelsdorf every 30 minutes.
